We’ve heard summer weather is approaching ASAP (about time, right?). That means it’s time to shop for your new favorite swimsuit for summer 2018. Enough time has passed since the holidays, Valentine’s, and Easter that it’s officially almost summer season.

 

We found the best pink one-pieces that are worth a little splurge as an investment this summer and recommend buying them soon before your size sells out! Take a look below:

While the front may be fairly simple, the back on this pink Veronica swimsuit steals the show! A+ for adjustable straps and hidden shelf bra.

There are zero ways you can go wrong with a bubblegum pink, classic California fit, and a little girl power. Plus, it’s so insta-worthy.

Reversible between navy and hot pink!? Yes, please! Let’s divide this price by two and get $84.50 per swimsuit and it’s a steal.

Written by: Sarah Felbin

It’s July, which means beach days, heat waves, and… sunburn. Whether you burn first, tan later or skip tanning altogether, you’ve no doubt had a lovely beach day ruined by a low SPF and a long nap – and so have we! That’s why we sorted through 2016’s latest and greatest beach trends to bring you a list of cover-ups (besides our fave Pinkly Perfect Wildwood Coverup as seen above!) that will not only make you the belle of the beach, but hopefully save your skin, too… Don’t forget to reapply!

 

Rompers

Shorts + shirt = easy, breezy summer style any day of the week. But rompers, the best trend next to jumpsuits, can take our favorite go-to outfit from plain Jane to “where’d you get that?!” without the extra effort. So, what does a girl wear on a hot day at the beach when her tan lines are out of control? A romper, natch.

Perfect Memorial Day Outfits for Each Beach Town

Written by: Elizabeth DePaul

 

 

Now that it’s April, it’s time to start thinking about the best weekend of the year… Memorial Day Weekend! It’s never too early to start planning that perfect outfit you’ll wear to kick off another summer with your besties at your favorite beach town. Check out some outfit inspiration for these Jersey shore points:

 

 

Avalon, NJ

If you’re staying in Avalon this MDW, chances are you’re going to hit up Avalon Freeze for a rainbow sprinkle cone, followed by a beach party at your bestie’s house. Avalon’s dress code is usually pink, green, and beachy, so pair some patterned shorts with a casual sweater and gold jewelry for your weekend wear:

 

AvalonMemorialDayLook

 

Lilly Pulitzer Scalloped Shorts, $68.00

Old Navy Hi-Lo Sweater, $16.00 

Francesca’s Long Strand Necklace, $24.00 

Francesca’s Embellished Sandal, $38.00

 

 

 

Wildwood, NJ

Wildwood is famous for its boardwalk and amusement rides, and you’ll likely end up taking a spin in the teacups or go on a ride on the Ferris wheel during Memorial Day Weekend. Most vacationers dress in a casual (yet still cute!) outfit so a graphic tee and jean shorts will pair well with the bright boardwalk lights and colors:

American Eagle Outfitters Denim Midi Shorts, $39.95

ModCloth A Tasty Retreat Graphic Tee,  $29.99

Merona Thong Sandals, $15.99

 

 

 

Ocean City, NJ

You might be spending your first summer weekend in Ocean City, NJ strolling the boardwalk, having a girls’ night, or in search of the perfect ice cream sundae. You’ll want to throw on a romper and flats to dress for any of these occasions, as most locals hop from place to place. Don’t forget to pack a denim jacket for when the summer air turns chilly:

ASOS Tye Dye Romper, $60.00

Best Ways to Show Off Your Beach Town Pride

 

pinkly.perfect.coordinate.keychains

 

If you’re a regular Pinkly Perfect reader, you probably have some sort of beach pride where you think your beach town is cooler than everyone else’s. For me, Avalon, NJ holds such a special place in my heart that I like to show my love for it off in as many ways as I can. Simply gushing about it in person and posting as many beach pics as possible on my Facebook and Instagram are not enough. Because I’m pretty sure you can all relate, I’m highlighting some creative ways for you to show off your beach town pride below.

 

Pinkly Perfect Coordinate Keychains, $16.00

 

Available for Avalon, Sea Isle City, Stone Harbor, and Ocean City, NJ, these painted leather keychains are the perfect way to carry your favorite place with you everywhere you go! These perfect keychains are made in the USA and come in black, pink, and blue and have stamped coordinates of your favorite seaside oasis. These also make great gifts for your besties because they’re only $16.00. Pack one up with a box of salt water taffy from Shriver’s and you’ve got the perfect summer-inspired present!

 

 

bauble.bar.charm.necklace

BaubleBar Custom Engraved Charm Necklace, $34.00

 

If coordinate keychains aren’t your thing, BaubleBar sells custom charm necklaces where you can choose the type of cord or chain you want along with charms that include letters. The above is what I made. A 31” pink (obviously) cord with gold charms embellished with “A” and “V.” What I love about this option is that it’s so unexpected! Most people will assume that the letters represent your initials but when you explain that they’re actually for your beach town (mine for Avalon, NJ), you’ll get a free pass to talk about how much you love it there!

 

 

breezinup.stone.harbor.tshirt

Breezin’ Up Clothing

 

Now that you’ll be set with accessory options, it’s time to offer up some clothing that can also show off your beach town pride. Breezin’ Up has locations along East Coast shore points like Stone Harbor, East Hampton, and Sag Harbor and offers up a huge selection of t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, pants, and hats that screen print town-specific graphics that are both classic and cute.

 

How else do you show off your beach town pride? Let us know in the comments section below! 🙂
